OB/GYN Associates prides itself on being the only practice in the area that is able to provide comprehensive obstetrical care to patients. Besides routine obstetrical care, our services include on site Maternal Fetal Medicine with new state of the art ultrasound equipment.
We are very fortunate to have three Certified Lactation Consultants on staff to help new mothers with breastfeeding and we are very proud to be designated by the NYS Department of Health as a “Breastfeeding Friendly Practice”
OB/GYN Associates established its own Baby Café in 2013. On Thursday evenings from 6pm to 8pm, our Orchard Park Rd location transforms into a breastfeeding drop-in center where new and pregnant moms can meet one another, enjoy refreshments, and get one-on-one support from our Certified Lactation Consultants.
“Give the Gift of Healing”
The placenta has multiple uses to help patients heal and has been used for years to encourage healing after surgery. Portions of placental tissue can be used to treat patients undergoing various surgeries or with inadequate healing of diabetic ulcers, bed sores, burns, and other types of wounds with complicated healing responses. The physicians at OB/GYN Associates of WNY participate in a placental donation program. At this time, any pregnant patients having a planned cesearean delivery can opt to participate in the program and donate their placenta to TissueTech, Inc. A short health questionnaire and consent form are required to make sure you qualify for participation. Additionally, a blood sample will be collected at the time of admission. There is no additional cost to you for donating and there is no harm to you or your baby from donating the placenta. Medial conditions such as active infection or malignancy will disqualify women from participating. If you would like to “give the gift of healing” or learn more information, visit www.unyts.org
